Blindspot – Series Review


So, a lot of TV series have started airing this Fall, but the only one that really stood out for me is Blindspot which is on NBC on Monday nights. To be honest, having been largely let down by Heroes Reborn and Quantico, I had very low expectations for Blindspot. But I was so wrong. This series is a shockingly great thriller/drama/mystery series – one of it’s kind. (IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4474344/).

Would you like to watch a 40 minute thrilling action/mystery short movie every Monday? If your answer is yes, you have to watch Blindspot. It’s freaking amazing.

Blindspot airs on NBC every Monday – Probably the best new TV series this Fall

THE PLOT: (WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD)

So, there’s this bag lying around in the middle of Times Square with a tag saying “Hello” in different languages and a tag that says ” Call The FBI”. I seriously thought there was a bomb in the bag and so did the FBI bomb disposal guy think. But what’s in the bag? Boom a girl with the dragon tattoo(s). And boy is this one hot too! Guys watch out for Jamie Alexander, she’s gorgeous and hot!

So anyway, this FBI agent called Weller is pulled from southern Kentucky where he is freeing women from torture and shit. Why? Because his name is fucking tattooed all over Jane Doe’s back in size 96 bold font. Oh by the way, the girl in the duffle bag has no memory of who she is or what has happened in her life up until the Times Square bag incident because someone injected her with two much of some PTSD drug which erases bad memories and since they gave her so much, it erased all her memories. Kind of sad, right?

Jamie Alexander plays Jane Doe in Blindspot.

So anyway, since the FBI can’t find shit about this girl’s details with no fingerprint/photo/DNA match anywhere on any record they have, they just start calling her Jane Doe. Duh, right? Anyway, the tattoos apart from looking fucking cool are all bits of critical info leading to one mystery or another and have the potential of saving hundreds to millions of lives or so I inferred at the end of the first episode.

Jane Doe and Kurt Weller in action

The first episode goes from slow to mind fucking blowing, when Weller, the FBI agent with his name all over Jane Doe’s back lets a bomb explode after stripping it off its C4. Also, Jane Doe goes from a demure naked “where am I?” situation to being a fucking badass with a Navy SEAL special op training and shit as she beats the crap out of a Chinese thug and his henchmen, not to mention her sniping abilities.

Basically, in every episode, they somehow find something related to a tattoo on her body and that leads to a fucking thrilling mystery being unraveled along with Weller’s backstory and Jane Doe getting some of her memories back.

BOTTOMLINE:

Jane Doe’s tattoos are the key to solving a number of mysteries and saving plenty of lives while she tries to get her memories back and we find out about Weller’s backstory. Also,CIA tries fighting with the FBI which is kinda fun.

MY RECOMMENDATION:
If you guys watch Quantico and think it’s good (which according to me is total shit), please watch Blindspot. You will not regret it. It’s fucking amazing.

MY RATING:4.6/5 (Game of Thrones is 5.1/5 and Breaking Bad is 5/5)

I’ll do an episode review for every episode from Episode 6 onwards!

Until, later then!

Movie Review: San Andreas


ONE LINE REVIEW: It’s a low budget remake of 2012, in which only California is destroyed, that too in 3D.

Do you want to watch a comedy flick with decent 3D graphics where almost everything in California breaks?? Then San Andreas, starring The Rock, is the movie for you.

The movie plot feels very similar (almost a carbon copy) to the movie 2012. Only difference is that in 2012 almost everything on Earth was destroyed by earthquakes and San Andreas, being the low budget movie, gets only California destroyed. It’s so precise, that the earthquakes stop at San Francisco as if Gandalf stood there at the northern end of San Francisco yelling “You Shall Not Pass”. Of course there were instances where they tried to highlight that the entire country was being affected when they said “It will be felt as far as the east coast” in the movie, but that was merely in words. They didn’t even shoot a scene there. So that’s that.

MOVIE PLOT:
Just like 2012, the protagonist is married and his wife is banging another guy. She is about to move in with the new guy as well. He loves his daughters, one is alive and the other is dead. The Rock is an LA fire and rescue helicopter pilot, though his job plays absolutely no part in the movie. All he does is steal a government vehicle for his personal purposes (a helicopter), a car, a plane and a boat. So apart from camels, every other mode of transport available on our planet. After they dramatically destroy San Francisco’s skyline with a combination of earthquakes and tsunamis, he saves his family and two boys who just happened to be there with his daughter. So, yeah 2012 but in California.

Camels : The only mode of transportation not used in the movie.

THE CAST:

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Ray:
I couldn’t accept the fact that he was able to swim and save his daughter. Like, don’t rocks sink in water? After a number of electrifying kisses to the smoking hot Alexandro Daddario (his daughter in the movie), she comes back to life and all the destruction stops. Such wow. Much tears.

Carlo Gugino as Emma: (Ray’s wife)
She leaves The Rock because he is too awesome and she starts banging a rich guy who raises tall buildings in San Francisco, not to mention he is ex-Mr. Fantastic. No point in her being in the movie. She didn’t save any life. The Rock wasted a tank full of fuel and a helicopter to save her. Such waste. Much amaze.

Ioan Grufford as Daniel Riddick: (The guy who Emma was bangin)
This character was Riddick-ulous. He showed absolutely no signs of the superhero qualities he once possessed in Fantastic 4. Bravery? LOL to that. He saw a large boulder fall from the floor above and he ran screaming like a lil bitch leaving his girlfriend’s daughter to die. He also pushed an innocent guy away from his spot and ended up killing him. (Sheldon Cooper wont be happy about that) I guess not having Jessica Alba with him in California broke his heart. He died when a container ship gang banged Golden gate bridge.

Far from being Mr.Fantastic, he ran away like a lil bitch.

Alexandra Daddario as Blake:
Probably the best looking member of the cast. Also, smokin hot. Nuff said.

The smokin hot Alexandra Daddario plays the role of Blake

Hugo Johnstone-Burt as Ben:
It’s sad that a great engineer like him was still searching for a job at the start of the movie. Also, gets the hot chick at the end. You sir, have my respect.

Art Parkinson as Ollie:
He single handedly saved the movie for me. He was funny, serious, resourceful and had more balls than his brother and got Blake’s number for his bro. Best wingman ever or what? Not to mention his bag which had almost everything and can only be rivaled by Dora the explorer’s bag.

Probably the bag Ollie had, stolen from Dora the Explorer.

Scientists/ Reporters at CalTech :
Good guy scientist finds out earthquake is gonna destroy California: Doesn’t tell anyone. Takes the reporter and hides under tables frequently (if you know where that’s heading 😉 ) . And his Russian student constantly has the expression like, “Fuck this shit. I’m going back to Mother Russia after this.”

FINAL CONCLUSION:
If you have money to waste, go for this movie. Or if you have a copy of 2012, just play the part where California gets destroyed, it’s pretty much the same.
RATING: 1/5 (half a point for Ollie and other half for the eye candy of an actress, Daddario.)
